The NBA betting line might favor the Blazers but the trends favor the Thunder. Let’s take a look at some of the numbers for this NBA matchup on Friday between the Blazers and Thunder.
NBA betting scheduling information shows that the Blazers are starting a four-game road trip on Friday in Oklahoma City. The Blazers have split their last ten meetings against the Thunder and they are 4-6 against the NBA odds. The teams have met just once in Oklahoma City since the Thunder moved from Seattle and the Thunder won 102-93 as six point basketball betting underdogs. The Blazers won the other matchup in Portland between the two teams this season as NBA betting results show.
Portland has been solid this season at home in terms of the NBA betting odds but they have struggled at little bit on the road. Brandon Roy continues to lead the Blazers in scoring as NBA betting stats indicate but overall Portland is just an average team offensively. Portland’s defense is solid, ranking inside the Top 10 in the league as basketball betting stats show. Portland usually plays very competitive games on the road which is a good thing when they are an underdog but it can be a problem when they are laying points in NBA odds as they will be in this matchup against Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City has been a great success story this season for NBA betting gamblers. They have slipped somewhat late in the season since the NBA betting oddsmakers have caught on but the Thunder still has solid numbers. Oklahoma City is still very young and they can struggle to score points. Kevin Durant has had a good season though and continues to lead them in scoring as basketball betting stats show.
There is a big under NBA betting trend in this series. Eight of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting number including the last six in a row. The Thunder have been one of the best under teams in the NBA this season at home so that is something to keep in mind as you look at this NBA betting matchup.
